A Fair Shake

Once again, the current White House occupant is spending your money to fly in Air Force One to a campaign stop. The location of his many stops varies, but his message doesn’t. He continues to cry out for everyone in America to get a fair shake. According to America’s emperor wannabe, the rich are preventing the middle class from getting a fair shake because the rich are somehow depriving the middle class because they don’t pay enough taxes. Last time I checked, which was about five minutes ago, the top 10% earners in this country pay 70% of the taxes while 47% pay nothing…nothing.

What would be enough? The 100% Barrack Obama Sr. wanted to impose on Kenya’s rich? Can you say “dreams from my father”?

This shows how clueless the vacation taking, golf-playing narcissist in thief is about the way America was designed by our Founding Fathers. Getting a fair shake in America has never been about big government stealing from the rich to give to the poor. Getting a fair shake has been about government not interfering with the private sector free market’s ability to afford equal opportunity to everyone, regardless of their starting point in life.

Instead of digging Social Security into an ever bigger hole by extending the payroll tax cut for a year, how about creating some certainty for investors by making permanent changes to America’s ridiculously complicated tax code? How about creating a simplified tax code that gives incentives for investment? How about creating an economic environment where the rich, middle class and poor alike all feel it’s worth the risk to invest in a start up business? Thanks to existing “progressive” taxation and regulations, today this is practically impossible.

This is not the time to be playing politics with tax and entitlement reform. These reforms are a national need, not a political wedge issue. Without these reforms America cannot and will not survive. The time now is for action, not campaign stops filled with empty, partisan rhetoric.
